Blue Light Therapy for Moderate Acne
You don’t have to be a teenager to struggle with acne. Many adults still find themselves with stubborn acne and are unhappy with the current treatment options. Fortunately, the unique photodynamic therapy offered by BLU-U, blue light therapy, can help clear up hard-to-control and moderate acne without the use of drugs or antibiotics.
What is BLU-U Blue Light Treatment?
Using a specialized blue light that kills acne bacteria in your dermis, BLU-U is a safe, non-painful way to help control your acne. How does it work? It’s simple – you sit with your face close to the blue light for a short session (typically about 17 minutes) once or twice per week, for up to five weeks.
